If you aren’t thrilled with Romney or Obama, but don’t know who else to vote for, never fear! Pop the Bubble is providing you with Third Party Thursdays, a week by week introduction to the third party candidates running this year. Remember, an informed vote is the best vote – so make sure you know EXACTLY who you’re voting for in 2012!
Our first spotlight goes to the candidate from America’s Party: Tom Hoefling.
Tom Hoefling’s party and his stances this election are very conservative. You can read America’s Party’s official platform here, but we’re going to give you a few highlights:
1. Tom Hoefling and America’s Party are pro-life.
2. Hoefling is calling for a repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment – the federal income tax.
3. He also seeks the passage of the Federal Marriage Amendment, which establishes the institution of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Obviously, the platform includes much more than this, but if Hoefling’s views line up with yours, check out the rest of his platform.
What do you think about the idea of voting for a third party candidate? Is it time for an alternative candidate to win an election?
